Where Adults Reign Supreme

Tempted to go unwind in a tropical setting? Want to escape down south where there are no kids? You will, no doubt, find your little slice of paradise among the hotels in our Adults Collection, intended exclusively for travellers aged 18 and older.

And since “adults-only vacation” means different things to different people, we have split our hotels between those that radiate Zen vibes and those that pulsate with Vibrant vibes.

ZEN VIBES
These intimate hotels offer the ideal setting to relax on the beach or by the pool, dine in tranquility and soak up entertainment in a soothing atmosphere.

VIBRANT VIBES
In these large resorts, the lively daily entertainment and festive evening shows turn these places into a hotbed of excitement for those who like action.
